The Raven’s Home star went viral when she told Oprah Winfrey, “I’m tired of being labeled,” after questions about her sexuality.
She continued, “I’m an American. I’m not African-American — I’m American…I don’t know what country in Africa I’m from, but I do know that my roots are in Louisiana. I’m an American. And that’s a colorless person.”
The 32-year-old recanted the colorless remark saying, “I didn’t say I wasn’t Black.”
Raven continued, “I know I’m Black. There’s just a difference. There are many African-Americans, especially in 2018, that come over from Africa…that’s how I look at that title. There are a lot of Black Americans here who have been here longer than the Americans that are a different color.”
